Madison, Ala., Aug. 27, 2014—GeoCue Group is pleased to present “A Conversation with the NOAA Coastal Services Center.” Part of the NOAA Coastal Services Center’s mission is to provide geospatial products and services to enable the effective management of the nation’s coastal areas. Many governmental agencies at the state and local level are not fully equipped to address the challenges associated with flooding, hurricanes, sea level rise and other coastal hazards. The Coastal Services Center fills these gaps, providing critical geospatial data and tools through the Digital Coast to these organizations.
This topic will be presented by Mr. Nicolas (Miki) Schmidt, Division Chief, Science and Geospatial, NOAA Coastal Services Center. Nicholas Schmidt joined the NOAA Coastal Services Center in 1996. After serving as a manager of the Center’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program for four years, Schmidt became deputy chief of the Coastal Geospatial Services division, which leads the Center’s GIS and remote sensing activities. In 2004, he was named division chief. Schmidt holds a master’s degree in geography and a bachelor’s degree in marine science, both from the University of South Carolina.
